Remember the progressive Anglican church in New Zealand that brought you those disgraceful billboards where Joseph was in bed wondering how he could ever measure up to God. Last year’s Christmas billboard showed Mary holding a pregnancy test.
This year, the Revrend Glynn Cardy’s latest billboard depicts the baby Jesus with a rainbow halo. It reads, “It’s Christmas. It’s time for Jesus to come out.” Cardy said he’s simply trying to highlight the humanity of Jesus.
In an interview, Cardy said, “The fact is we don’t know what his sexual orientation was.”
“Would it make a difference if he was gay? Would that change the picture for you? Would it mean what we revere about him changes?”
